Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:
Around midnight March 31 an officer responded to a residence in the 200 block of Hickory for a burglary report.
A woman said she came home and called out for her boyfriend but he didn’t answer so she went out back to check on the dog and two men and a woman forced their way into the house.
She said they asked where her boyfriend was and she told them he wasn’t home.
She said one of the men hit her with a bucket of paint, and when she tried to run out the front door, he hit her in the head with a clock radio.
The 29-year-old said she pushed the man into the bathtub and ran out the door to a neighbor’s house, who said she would call police and then shut the door.
The officer noted a laceration on top of the woman’s head, drops of blood on her and the floor of her home and spilt paint on top of a lock radio on the floor.
The case was listed as active.

At an unspecified time March 31 an officer responded to a pharmacy in the 600 block of Llano Estecado Boulevard.
The pharmacist said he had received three prescriptions from a customer that had been altered.
The man showed the officer the prescriptions were originally for anti-depressants and sleep aids, but had been scratched out and altered to read Oxycontin and methadone.
The pharmacist said when he became suspicious he contacted the issuing physicians for original copies of the prescriptions and discovered they had indeed been altered.
He provided the officer documentation.
The officer contacted the 27-year-old’s military first sergeant, who delivered him to the police department.
He was arrested on three counts of forgery.

Around 2 p.m. March 31 an officer on patrol saw two males lying on the sidewalk in the 200 block of Grand Avenue.
The officer discovered that a 15-year-old riding a bicycle had run into a pedestrian, knocking both of them to the ground.
An ambulance was called to treat both for head injuries because they struck their heads on the concrete.
The youth said he was riding his bike on the sidewalk, the 43-year-old man walked out of a doorway and he ran into him before he had time to stop.
The boy was issued a citation for riding on the sidewalk.

About 6 p.m. April 1 an officer responded to the 600 block of Circle Drive for a dog attack.
A man said he and his dog went into the alley to throw away some trash and a loose pitt bull-type dog attacked his Blue Healer.
The man said he had to kick at the dog and it finally ran away but his dog suffered puncture wounds and needed stitches.
He said it wasn’t the first time the dog had run loose and been aggressive in the neighborhood.
The officer located the owner of the animal and cited him for allowing his animal to run at large.
The man argued the other dog owner should be cited too for having his dog out off a leash but the officer informed him the man’s dog was under control and it was his animal that had injured another.
